Standardized implementation in public administration

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an informative methodology that gradually simulates the planning and building process of a plant and combines 3D planning, scheduling, costs, supply chain management and materials as well as project and information management and maintenance. The BIM methodology is considered the second digital revolution in the construction sector and leads to a significant increase in the efficiency and quality of the processes. Public administration plays a crucial role in this revolution: on the one hand, it is itself a driving force for change and the digitization of public structures; on the other hand, it gets in contact with the experts of the sector. In addition, the public administration must be prepared for the mandatory use of electronic simulation tools to manage the building information, as described in the D.lgs. 50/2016 (new Procurement Code).

A strategy for the introduction of the methodology and the BIM instruments was defined. This strategy also requires the constant involvement of professional associations in the construction sector. Their participation in this transitional period is of fundamental importance for the support of the stakeholders, especially for SME and allows to understand the needs and requirements of the public administration and thus to deliver quality products that meet the expectations of the customer. In implementing BIM practices and processes, the public administration is obliged to create structures that facilitate the digitization of the construction sector and allow equal treatment of all the competitors.

The aim of the research is to develop experiment and validate a methodological approach to BIM implementation in public administration. Guidelines for the implementation of BIM in the public administration can be extracted from the research results.
